Collection: Kentucky Bluegrass

Kentucky Bluegrass is a perennial, cool season, sod forming grass that spreads by underground runners called rhizomes.   Native to Europe and Asia and naturalized in North America, it is widely adapted throughout the cool humid and transitional zones and can be effectively utilized in arid zones with supplemental irrigation. Due to its wide adaptability and exceptional turf quality, it is the most widely used and recognized as the standard by which other cool-season grasses are measured.

Bluegrass varieties are unique in that they exhibit a wide range of genetic diversity.  Such diversity is an advantage for disease and insect resistance and improved turf quality when bluegrasses are used in blends and mixtures.  There are well over 100 varieties of Kentucky Bluegrasses with various traits and characteristics. 

Interesting facts:  The reason it is called “Kentucky” Bluegrass is that the grass was originally used as a pasture grass for horse grazing and today provides a nutritious and highly palatable pasture throughout the northern half of the United States.  When weather is favorable, one Kentucky Bluegrass plant can produce from 20 to 50  feet of rhizomes in five months.
